guys i just purchased a sr20det u12 from venus auto... and my question is, i pulled off the stock plastic intake from the t25 turbo and there was oil in the intake and alittle around the blades? what does this mean is it blown or something, and if not why is there oil in there, i know its got a constant bead of oil but i dont think it should leak much if at all. the oil is fresh its not black its a nice color.

thanks guys!!

its either blow by or more than likely the seals in the turbo are on the way out. so leak a little for a while so see how it goes before you run out and have it rebuilt, unless you are the very picky type like me

Probably just blow-by from the PCV system. My stock DET was the same way. I cleaned it out and it was fine.

ok this cantttt be good !! guys i pulled the top mount off last night.. and i knoww this isnt right i looked down into the turbo from the cold side, and its a ****in oil gully!! its got about 3in of oil chillin. if i would have started that engine without looking i would have fillllled my intercooler with oil. about a 1/4 quart of it.... so you guys think i have a blown seal???

and yea venus will help me because i pointed this out to them and they said if theres any problem we can give you another t25 for free or i can pick out another motor... they have avenirs too ! but there 1500, i would have got a u13 but every u13 was turbo less and jackkkedd looking, like wholes in the valve covers and ****, just bannged around.

what do you guys think (i will really feel like an idiot if this is somewhat normal during shipping or something)

thanks

i know ive asked this before but why is the avenir t25 better? i know its mounted differnt, but how can i tell the differnce, i can go pick up one if i know? and is the avenir block any differnt than the u12, like does the u12 have oil squirters... i have heard people say u12s dont but ive also heard diff... is the turbo system the only thing better on the avenir or the u13's

they're all the same at the end of the day. avenir w10 black valve cover same as u13 otherwise, w11 avenir silver valve cover ball bearing turbo newest sr20det out.

avenirs are more expensive because they are newer.

my advice to you is this. Remove every intake piping to turbo so you can visually see and touch the turbine wheel.
Once you can see the turbines on all the DETs in the shop spin and pull on all the wheels.
By touching and spining them you yourself will be able to determine which is in best condition.

Thats how I chose mine.

Good to hear that venus is actually helping you. I have seen a couple of my good friends get screwed over by those basterds....
